Notice of Final Federal Agency Actions on Proposed Highway in 
Utah

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of Limitation on Claims for Judicial Review of Actions 
by FHWA.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces actions taken by the FHWA that are final 
within the meaning of 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). The actions relate to a 
proposed multi-modal project (Provo-Orem Bus Rapid Transit) that 
addresses roadway and transit infrastructure needs in Utah County, 
State of Utah. Those actions grant licenses, permits, and approvals for 
the project.

DATES: By this notice, the FHWA is advising the public of final agency 
actions subject to 23 U.S.C. 139(l)(1). A claim seeking judicial review 
of the Federal agency actions on the highway project will be barred 
unless the claim is filed on or before April 1, 2012. If the Federal 
law that authorizes judicial review of a claim provides a time period 
of less than 180 days for filing such claim, then that shorter time 
period still applies.

Environmental Program Manager, Federal Highway Administration, 2520

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the FHWA has

licenses, permits, and approvals for the following highway project in 
the State of Utah: The Provo-Orem Bus Rapid Transit project number F-

covers the roadway portions of the selected alternative from the 
Environmental Assessment which include: Two additional general purpose 
lanes on University Parkway from State Street to University Avenue in 
Provo, Utah; New high-occupancy/toll (HOT) interchange at 800 South and 
I-15 in Orem to serve automobiles, transit vehicles, pedestrians, and 
cyclists. These improvements will increase transportation capacity to 
accommodate growing population, employment, student enrollment, and 
travel demand in the year 2030; improve multimodal connectivity across 
I-15 and from I-15 to Orem and Provo, Utah.
    The actions by the Federal agency, and the laws under which such
